This really is an entertaining series. Not exactly haute literature, but the writing is solid and the stories draw you in. As always, Simon Scarrow is perfectly matched to this series.
Give this one a try if you’re into this genre. You won’t be disappointed.
Simon Scarrow has created two characters who go together extremely well despite their differences. This book continues to follow their exploits in Britain and includes some minor engagements and a significant climactic battle with a genuinely exciting ending.
The combination of the well-rounded characters, Scarrow's detailed knowledge of his subject area and David Thorpe's excellent narration make this a genuinely compelling package that I would recommend to anyone interested in the genre though the books are probably better read in order.
The weakness still, as I write, is that this series has gaps in it on Audible that remain unplugged for whatever reason so have to be sought in other formats.

the characters are constantly evolving and it sticks as closely as possible to historical records so makes it more believable! recommended!

the story was good apart from the story holes with carto and Lavinia, they speak of knowing the Tribune before their relationship however she was only a slave on the market only recently
I am enjoying these Roman era books but I think the author should look at how communications would have occurred particularly between the Romans and the tribes of Britain ( i guess Celts at that time) doubt that the natives spoke latin . Other than this I enjoyed the licence that the author took lookink forward to the next in the series.
